Artisanal Coffee Tasting

Join us at Gift Cartel on Saturday morning for a tasting with the owner of Kahawa 1893! 

We will be sampling four different distinct coffees, that are grown in farmer-centered communities and roasted right in Redhook, and learning about the process that gives each coffee its unique flavor. 

Enjoy a gorgeous DUMBO Brooklyn morning with a truly indulgent caffeine experience! Stick around to shop the 10+ sustainably-minded woman-owned brands that are part of Gift Cartel.

About the brand:

Kahawa 1893 was founded to showcase the distinctive taste of East African coffee and to empower the female farmers who make specialty coffee possible. My mom is one of them and the source of inspiration for Kahawa 1893 - learn more at

In keeping with our tradition, we share only the best coffees that capture our imagination. Our coffee is grown at very high altitudes, above 6,000ft, handpicked by local farmers and profile roasted in small batches. We compensate our farmers above Fair Trade levels and allocate 25% of our profits towards supporting female entrepreneurs in Africa.
